A lifetime garage fixture
thenekkidtruth from Sandusky, Ohio
There were somewhat less expensive choices, but I took a chance that this brand might prove to be of a higher level of quality. I'm glad I did. This is a tough, strong, rugged lifetime device - just what I was looking for in my garage. The cord is thick and tough, yet remains flexible even when cold. There are two ways provided to mount it - a convenient spiral screw hook and a more substantial mounting plate with a steel pin stay which holds the cord reel in place with less sway. Took me only about 20 minutes to attach it firmly to my ceiling. This cord reel features a strong, reliable retraction mechanism and a hefty 3-outlet molded plug end. Know that empty socket in the dual outlet in your garage ceiling used to power your garage door opener? Mine has some convenient, real utility now, and it will for years and years to come thanks to this tough device. The molded outlet end contains it's own inline breaker, which is a bonus because it's easily accessible without getting your ladder out - or blowing the service panel breaker that opens your garage door.
